An average fan would spend £1,458.10 supporting Arsenal this season, according to the latest BBC Price of Football survey.

The results were released on Wednesday night, with data collected from clubs in the top five divisions of English football.

By adding together the cost of a club’s cheapest season ticket, TV sport subscription and adult shirt, as well as a pie, cup of tea and programme for each game, the BBC calculated how much it would cost a fan to support their club.

The survey reveals Gunners fans could have spent their £1,458.10 elsewhere by buying 145 months of music streaming, 583 cappuccinos, 31 video games or 47 grams of gold.

The north Londoners’ lowest-priced season ticket of £891 is the highest in the Premier League, with Huddersfield Town the best value at £100.

Arsenal are in a relegation battle when it comes to the price per home goal category, with fans ‘spending’ £26.00 to see the Gunners score at the Emirates, the second worst rate in the league.

The price of a replica adult Arsenal shirt reflected badly, with the cost at £55 higher than the league average by £4.10.

The cost of a replica child Gunners shirt of £45 is £4.75 higher than the league average.

Spurs fans are also out of pocket when it comes to the price of a cup of tea, which at £2.50 is 38p higher than the league average; a pie, which is 25p higher than the league average at £3.90; and a programme, which at £3.50 is 10p more expensive than the league average.

• The BBC surveyed all clubs from the top five men’s leagues in England, the top four Scottish leagues, the premier divisions in Northern Ireland and Wales, and the two Women’s Super Leagues. Ballinamallard, Coleraine, Crusaders, Dungannon, Linfield and Warrenpoint failed to respond.
